“Nuno Felted Wall Hanging” Workshop Fee - $60
Starting with a base of white pre-felted Merino wool, participants will create a design by layering various materials that could include Merino fiber, wool yarn, thinner fabrics, and pre-felt scraps, etc. The piece is then saturated with a warm soap solution, massaged to form an artful Nuno hanging, rinsed in cold water, and then blocked to shape.
The first day of the workshop, we will be designing and wet felting the hanging. The participants will rinse the piece and take it home to block it. The second day of the workshop will be devoted to embellishing the hangings and a discussion of how to display the finished work.
Participants should search their stash(es) for design elements that complement their felted piece, such as embroidery cotton, ribbon, yarn, beads, pieces of old jewelry, found objects, etc.
